Free Biscayne 22 plans

With apologies if this runs afoul of forum etiquette (I'll happily delete this post if it does). I just saw a thread on the Wooden Boat forum that a gentleman is giving away several sets of plans he hasn't build and isn't going to build. Included are the plans an patterns for a Biscayne 22. Thought ...

Re: Oups.. what happens when...

I really don't think it'll be a problem. From what I've read, if you mix it properly (which I'm sure you did) epoxy will cure - it just might take a while. I'm working in an unheated garage, which is regularly down around 50F. It often takes my epoxy three days or so to cure, byt it always does, har...

Re: have a question

Looks like the Amigo is strip planked with plywood. I'm certain you can use that technique on large boats. However, I'd look for a plan designed for the technique you want o use rather than adapting another boat designed for a different style. There are lots of plans out there, in sure you can find ...

Finding the teak isn't usually the problem. It's finding the cash to buy the teak. :mrgreen:

Ah, there's the problem - I was only looking on glen-l.com and not boatdesigns.com. Here's a direct link: http://glen-l.com/desn-char.html.

Re: pre-notching chine blocking for chine log on Malahini

There is also an Edensaw down in Tacoma (I thought it was Kent, but I just checked the website, and saw that the listed address is Tacoma). Anyway, the address and contact into is on their website: http://www.edensaw.com/.

Re: Boat parts with labels needed!

I would have sworn I'd seen just such a diagram of the various major boat parts somewhere on glen-l.com, but I can't seem to find it now. Maybe someone else knows where it is?

Re: will steaming a scarf joint weaken the joint?

I'm sure you've thought of this, but can you flip the chine around so the scarf is on the other side of the chine, not the side you plan on steaming? Unless it's in the middle, and/or you need to steam more than half of the chine log, it seems like that would be the best solution. I'd be a bit worri...

Re: Belaying Pins

Thanks for the opinion, it's certainly food for thought. I've definitely noticed that TB3 is hard to clean up by sanding it. I took the time to look up the difference in water resistance ratings between TB2 and TB3, and it looks like the main difference is I can boil TB3. I don't really plan on boil...

Re: Belaying Pins

Hijacking the post entirely, can yu tell us what problems you've had with Titebond III? I've used a fair amount of it on my Squirt so far, and plan on using more, so it'd be nice to know what to watch out for.

Re: transom cutout

...unless you wanted to offset the drain to one side or the other which would then require a limber hole through the knee to allow the water to pass from one side to the other.... Unless you plan on putting in two drains... As for the laminations and thickess, I ended up having to cut a small notch...
